Fluid Forms with Stephanie Liapis
Stephanie’s class is based in release technique and highly influenced by her work with Doug Varone. Class begins with a guided improvisation investigating ideas of connection, weight, effort and sensation. Imagery is used to create connection to the body and the body’s relationship to space, and most importantly, to build a sense of joy in how we move as individuals. These concepts are then further explored and developed through structured exercises. Students are asked to move boldly and physically, finding ease in the joints and committing to the movement task at hand.
